Year 7-9 Tīeke Dean's Report

Liisa Laycock —

Kia Ora, Talofa, Malo E Lelei, Kia Orana, Kamusta, Hei. Well here we are again! School as we know it is has been looking a little bit different recently.

Online learning, Google Hangouts, Blogging…... However, I’m pretty sure we have this sussed second time around.

Work is accessible through teacher sites. These can be found linked on student’s personal school sites or emailed out from specific teachers.

It’s great to see the level of engagement and the work that is being generated – lots of creativity going on!

A reminder we continue to make use of google hangouts as a way to keep in contact and keep the momentum of learning going. It is important that students check their school emails regularly and, where they are able, join in on any scheduled hangout meets.

I understand, however, that everyone’s bubble may look different during this time and what works for some may not for others. Please continue doing what is working for you and your whānau and don’t hesitate to contact school if you need support at any stage.

Our kāhui Wānanga teachers have again been outstanding in their flexibility, support and encouragement during this time! They are in constant contact with tamariki making sure that this adjustment to online learning is as stress free as possible. I thank them for their ‘above and beyond call of duty’ approach once again and know that they will continue this whatever the next steps in Level 3 will look like for us as a kura.

And lastly as we find ourselves once again in our own wee bubbles, a huge thank you to all whānau and students that have simply adjusted and gone with the flow to what is again the new normal.

So stay safe people, we have got this.

From my bubble, Nakemiin
